EXPOSURE TO TOXIC CHEMICALS IN EVERYDAY LIFE

The skin is the largest organ in the body and absorbs substances with which it comes into contact, and these go directly into lymph and blood and to the organs. Toxic chemicals and preservatives are hidden in body care products and furthermore they are tested on animals in cruel conditions which adds toxic energy to them. Household products themselves are loaded with toxic chemicals and enter the body through skin and the lungs and are bound to affect the body by the law of karma. 


For optimum health only use natural products, even though they may  be labeled and derived from natural sources, very often toxins are produced in the processing. Most common brands contain dangerous ingredients they are found in toothpaste, shampoos, conditioners, deodorants, soaps, lotions, sunscreens, make-up, cleansing products  as well as being found in food.

 

Common Toxic Chemicals are:-


Acetone – is a neurotoxin, an eye and skin irritant and affects the nervous and respiratory systems.


Aluminum – is used in antiperspirants, commonly used as food and drink containers and cooking utensils. Veterinarians advise never to use aluminum as a feeding container for animals as aluminum is a know toxin. Aluminum oxide easily absorbs into acidic food when cooking in an aluminum pot. It causes lymphatic toxicity and contributes to breast cancer and is directly related to Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s.


Hair Dyes – contain heavy metals, arsenic and lead all of which are carcinogenic and absorbed through the scalp. Cancer is cause when these dyes are applied to the skin.


Butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) The primary use for BHA is as an antioxidant and preservative in food, food packaging, animal feed, cosmetics, rubber, and petroleum products. Also commonly used in medicines, such as isotretinoin, lovastatin, and simvastatin, among others.


Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) is useful for its antioxidant properties. European and U.S. regulations allow small amounts to be used as a food additive. BHT is widely used to prevent oxidation in fluids (e.g. fuel, oil) and other materials where free radicals must be controlled. BHA and BHT are in food and in body care products, these chemicals are carcinogens, are capable of corroding metal and causing dermatitis when on the skin. 


MEA - Monoethanolamine and DEA - Diethanolamine  are used in the petroleum industry and are in detergents. They are known to cause liver and kidney cancer. They are irritants to the eyes and skin. 


Formaldehyde – or formalin is used as disinfectants and for preservation of biological specimens and commonly used in nail hardeners and/or nail varnish. It is known to cause eye, nose and throat irritation, asthma, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, skin rashes, nosebleeds, headache, dizziness and weakens the immune system. 


Fragrances – can cause birth defects, reproductive impairments and liver damage in laboratory animals. Manufacturers are not required to list the ingredients of fragrances which can be – methylene chloride, toluene, methyl ethyl ketone, ethyl alcohol, benzyl chloride, all of which are hazardous. 


Mineral oil, Petroleum jelly, Paraffin Wax/oil - are all petroleum byproducts. They disrupt the skin’s natural immune barrier, impede the natural elimination of toxins, promote acne/skin disorders and cause premature aging.


Propylene glycol PG is an organic compound with the chemical formula C3H8O2. Chemically it is classed as a diol and is miscible with a broad range of solvents, including water, acetone, and chloroform. It is produced on a large scale and is primarily used in the production of polymers. It is  used in food processing, is the active ingredient in antifreeze and is commonly used in antiperspirants. It is a highly toxic chemical and can remove barnacles from boats and known to contributes to breast cancer.


Sodium Laurl Sulphate - is an organic compound used in many domestic cleaning and hygiene products. It is derived from inexpensive coconut and palm oils and is commonly contaminated with dioxin a known carcinogen. It is found in all shampoos. It is in all soaps, carwashes, degreasers and car engine cleaners. It is responsible for PMS, menopausal symptoms, drop in male fertility and an increase in cancer in females.
